This Contessa HG151V Rangemaster is brought to you by BCR Music & Sound, Central PA's premier guitar, amp, and pedal dealer! The photos in this listing are of the actual guitar listed for sale here in our store.

This vintage Contessa Rangemaster is in Excellent condition. The frets are original and show nominal flattening under the B-string. Factory fret wire is VERY small (typical for instruments of this age). Inlays were re-glued at one point and are beginning to emerge slightly without affecting playability. Fingerboard behind fret # 2 has a dip from finger wear, but also does not cause any fretting issues. The finish around the top edge of the headstock is consistently worn but is stable. The body has small marks and nicks consistent with normal play, but no serious damage or structural issues. Electronics, trem, and hardware are in good working order with minimal pitting and no rust. No case or other accessories included.Ā 

ThisĀ beautiful semi-hollow electric hails from the 1960's and is looking pretty chipper for its age! Built with an ornate switching system and proprietary Bigsby - style tremolo, this beauty delivers everything from mellow jazz tones to ripping, aggressive rock n' roll bite! The neck is slim and fast-playing, and the frets are VERY small - expect to feel the fingerboard against your fingers! Still capable of whole step bends, this guitar is incredibly charming and ready to rock for many years to come!
